The role of a fire alarm system is to notify building occupants of a fire so they can exit the building to safety. A monitored alarm system goes a step further and alerts the fire department and proper authorities of a fire or emergency in your building. Monitored alarm systems can improve the safety and security of your building.
Why are Monitored Fire Alarm Systems Beneficial?
- Peace of mind that your facility is protected.
When you have an alarm monitoring system in your building, you can have peace of mind that your building will be getting the response and attention that it needs in an emergency. You can eliminate worry and stress by knowing that your property is protected.
- Instant alerting of the authorities.
When a monitored alarm is activated, a signal is sent instantaneously to a central station where dispatchers will assess the situation and notify the proper authorities. This means that you don’t have to wait for building occupants to call 911, leading to faster response times.
- Attention for your building even when it is unoccupied.
If your building is vacant or if an emergency occurs during non-business hours, the fire department or emergency personnel will be notified of an emergency at your property.
- Monitoring of trouble and supervisory signals for fire alarms and sprinklers.
Many alarm monitoring systems can monitor for trouble and supervisory signals for your fire alarm and fire sprinkler systems. This means that if an issue arises with your building’s fire protection system, you will be notified immediately so that the proper steps can be taken to fix the problem.
- Around the clock protection.
Alarm monitoring systems are on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. No matter the time of day, you can rest assured that your building is getting the attention it needs when an emergency arises.
- Save lives and protect property.
The faster that the fire department and emergency personnel are dispatched to your property, the more likely it is that lives will be saved, and less property damage will occur.
